Roger Waters Us + Them concert film gets digital release

Roger Waters will issue the digital release of his 2019 concert film, “Us + Them”, on June 16.

To be available via 4K, HD and SD Digital and Video On Demand, the project – directed by Sean Evans – captures Waters live in Amsterdam on the European leg of his 2017 – 2018 tour, which saw the rocker perform to over two million people around the world.

The trek saw the bassist feature songs from legendary Pink Floyd albums including “The Dark Side Of The Moon”, “The Wall”, “Animals” and “Wish You Were Here”, and from his 2017 record, “Is This The Life We Really Want?”

Waters played 156 shows to a total of 2.3 million fans on the global trek, which took in US $169.46 million at the box office.

Viewers on digital will have access to all-new post-feature content including two additional concert songs not included in the original feature (“Comfortably Numb” and “Smell The Roses”) as well as “A Fleeting Glimpse”, a documentary short featuring behind-the-scenes moments from the tour.

Waters made headlines this past week when he alleged that David Gilmour has banned references to his solo works from the Pink Floyd website.

The bassist also revealed that he had an unsuccessful meeting with his former bandmates last year in an attempt to discuss ways in which they could work together to share access to fans via Pink Floyd’s social media sites.
